Cardinal Weekly November 29

November 29, 2018


Dear Generous Valley View Parents, 


Did you know that YOUR donation to the 2018-19 Cardinal Fund allows Valley View's Booster Club to supply $50 gift cards to EVERY VVE staff member this holiday season? That equates to over 75 gift cards in December (and again in May for end-of-year gifts)! Our team of Personal Shoppers, led by Christi Strmiska, will be purchasing gift cards and delivering them to their assigned teachers and staff members before the winter break (and again at the end of the school year).  Each Personal Shopper refers to the Staff Favorites List (a list of each staff member's favorite food, drink, hobbies, etc.) to select a gift card on behalf of the class and all parents.  When we say all, we mean ALL staff benefits in a tangible and meaningful way.  The recipients include every grade level teacher, specials teachers (Art/PE/Music), special education teachers, specialist, secretaries, counselors, nurse, librarian, custodians, cafeteria staff, principal and so forth. 


This form of gift giving ensures that those serving our precious children, both directly and indirectly, are recognized and appreciated in a consistent and equitable way, which is extremely important to our team-oriented staff. As always, parents are welcome to use the Staff Favorites List any time of year to go above and beyond for any staff member making a positive impact; nevertheless, ALL parents can rest easy knowing that the Personal Shoppers have your back! It's no hassle, no pressure giving at its best. 


We have also received a number of questions and want to clarify that the Booster Club does not provide gifts for teacher or staff birthdays. This is up to the discretion of each parent if they wish to give a birthday gift to any faculty member. Staff Favorites and birthdays can be found here or through the Valley View's Booster Club website.


As always, thank you for your support and contribution to the Cardinal Fund!
